Abstract

The authors describe an unusual rare presentation of endometriosis in a hydrocoele of the canal of Nuck. A 43-year-old lady presented with a swelling in her right groin associated with mild discomfort. Examination revealed a cystic swelling in the groin for which she underwent an exploration and excision of the swelling. Surgery revealed a hydrocele of the canal of Nuck which was confirmed histologically. The unusual presentation of endometriosis in the sac was confirmed immunocytochemically.
